Junior School (Year 3-6)

St Virgil’s College Junior School is an all boys Catholic primary school catering for boys in Kindergarten, Prep and Grades 3 to 6. The Junior School sits in a central city campus next to the magnificent St Mary’s Cathedral. Grade 1 will commence in 2023 and Grade 2 in 2024 completing the College's Kindergarten to Year 6 learning pathway at the Patrick Street campus. 

Our curriculum is comprehensive, interesting and challenging and encourages boys to strive for personal excellence in all endeavours. Our dedicated teaching staff focus on providing an engaging, challenging and supportive learning environment that is tailored to the needs of boys. Our staff implicitly understand that boys have different learning needs and styles and provide opportunities for boys to grow and experience success.

Specialist teachers provide lessons in Art, Physical Education, Japanese, Music, Library and Woodwork.

Learning Enhancement

Learning Enhancement is available for those students who after a series of assessments are found to be experiencing difficulties accessing the curriculum at their age level and require extra support, or are achieving at a high level and require extension and enrichment activities. A number of successful programmes are used to assist boys with their spelling, maths and reading development.

The College Also Provides:

  • a well organised and varied sporting programme. In addition to swimming, cross country and athletics, we also offer a number of team sports including football, soccer, futsal, hockey, basketball, water polo, flippa ball, touch football, tennis and badminton. Boys are expected to participate in at least one team event each year.
  • a comprehensive music programme where the students have their weekly class music lesson to learn a musical instrument, and also join our Junior School Band in Grade 5 and 6. There is also the opportunity for private tuition and/or to sing in our choir.
  • a camp experience for all students from Year 3.
  • extension experiences in woodwork, robotics and leadership.
  • a safe environment where students and their families are very welcome and valued. If you wish to find out more about the College's Junior School or would like to arrange a tour please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

Our College Relies Upon Volunteers

Please join us in supporting the students of St Virgil's College. Research highlights that successful educational outcomes for boys are achieved where there is a strong connection and working relationship between home and school.
